S Jefferie Gibson Profile
With a 5-5 record, Gray's Creek [Hope Mills, N.C.] is set to take on 8-2 Douglas Byrd [Fayetteville] at 7:30 on Friday night.
"We're in the playoffs. But if we win we get a higher seed," Gibson said.
The 6-foot-4, 190-pound prospect has 40 tackles, three interceptions and a punt return for a touchdown so far during his senior season.
A three-star safety, according to Scout.com, Gibson has been to Clemson twice this season. First, for Georgia, the day he committed to the Tigers, and again for Florida State.
He enjoyed both experiences in Death Valley.
"It was a great environment. It was so loud. I've never been in an environment that loud before, or experienced anything like it," Gibson said.
With plans to get back to Clemson for The Citadel game, Gibson looks forward to watching the Tigers cap off their home schedule. He's been impressed by the No. 7 in the country.
"They've done pretty good," Gibson said. "They're doing great, actually."
By this time next year, he hopes to be making an impact for Dabo Swinney.
"Of course, I'm going to work hard. I'm just going to be working to get in the rotation where I'm getting a good amount of playing time and become the impact player that they want me to be," Gibson said.
Once committed to N.C. State, Gibson said contact from other schools has slowed down considerably. UNC, East Carolina and Tulane have also offered.
